The feet are the foundation of the body. If there is not enough support from the feet, various parts of the body—particularly the spine—are exposed to additional stress. This stress can lead to back, hip, knee and foot pain. Once your chiropractor corrects your spine, custom orthotics will help balance your feet and support good posture. thereby reducing stress throughout the body and keeping you pain-free for longer periods of time. Custom orthotics are designed to provide the needed support for your arches that will relieve pain now and prevent pain later.
Also known as “heel pain syndrome,” plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of foot pain, resulting from a gradual degeneration of the plantar fascia or sudden trauma to the area of the heel. It is commonly seen in middle-aged patients, runners, athletes and soldiers. Custom made orthotics help to hold the adjustments and position the foot for healing; and should be used in all shoes for best results.
PRONATION OR 'FLAT FEET'
When a foot is severely “pronated,” it means its arches have fallen and the foot is flat. Flat feet are less shock-absorbent and make for a less stable “base” for everything above—the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the entire body. Custom orthotics in every pair of shoes allows for pronation control, support and comfort.
In most cases, treating your hip is more likely to be successful when the focus is on restoring balanced function in the entire body—starting from the ground up—rather than simply reducing the pain and inflammation in the irritated tissues. Chiropractic care plus custom orthotics have been proven to help.
Having knee pain? Knee pain may be a result of sudden injury, an overuse injury, or the symptom of an underlying condition, such as arthritis. Your doctor’s approach to treating your knee pain will depend on the underlying cause. Chiropractic care plus custom orthotics can help. Custom orthotics can provide additional support, stability, and shock absorption from the ground.
Sciatica pain is a symptom of an underlying condition; not a diagnosis in and of itself. A number of common lower back problems can cause sciatica. Spinal adjustments focus on providing better spinal column alignment, which in turn is designed to help address a number of underlying conditions that can cause sciatic nerve pain. Chiropractic care plus custom made orthotics can help restore balanced function in the entire body—starting from the ground up to both treat and prevent future flare-ups of sciatica.
